Marcia is an insecure working girl, scared of her own shadow and of men’s attention. One day on the street she is swept away (or kidnapped) by a pair of androgynous punk girls named Mao and Lenin (Crespo and Hassan) and taken on a road trip that will free her from all self-doubt. Lerman’s feature début traces the backroads of Argentina with great style and a sly nod to Godard, in beautifully composed B&W cinematography and edgy editing. SUDDENLY was a hit at the London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival in 2003.
